Etch-a-sketch candidate, you won't know Romney after convention!
Flip flop is a Romney trademark, one McCain discovered 4 years ago, so be prepared for a new version of Romney after the Tampa convention by Mark Vogl

" When asked during an interview on CNN if the conservative positions Romney has taken during the Republican primary season "would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election," campaign spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom suggested Romney would receive a fresh start against President Barack Obama. " from the mouth of a senior campaign spokesman
From the first day after Mitt Romney announced I have questioned his political operating philosophy. I have pointed to him being the governor of a blue state, that he could not win in Massachusetts without Union support, or at least their acceptance. I have said he is the father of Romney Care, the proto type of the Obama care. I have questions his pronouncements to conservatism. But today, from his own spokesperson is the truth.
Fernstrom, Romney's spokesperson said Romney is like an Etch-a-Sketch!
Four years ago John McCain, "Mr. Moderate," identified 14 different major flip flops in Romney's career. Some of those flip flops include immigration and amnesty, (first he was yes, now he no, what will he be after Tampa?), On the Bush Tax Cuts Romney told the Massachusetts Congressional delegation that he wasn't sold on the Bush tax cuts, now he is. Mitt claims he was an independent Republican during the Reagan years, but four years ago he claimed Reagan was his hero!
These major flip flops should cause real concern when you consider Obama Care. Obama Care is about the federal government taking over one sixth of the American economy. So where will Romney be after Tampa on Obama Care? During the debates he has said he would repeal it. Repeal may be necessary if the liberal Supreme Court makes the wrong decisions on forcing you to buy a product, and on expanding the powers of the federal government. The decision on Obama care could literally shred the Constitution and the concepts of limited government. Romney's "versatility" is not a good thing for a nation in doubt. The economy continues to struggle as major questions are left undecded.
For NRA men, Romney has been all over the place. Initially he supported the ban on certain rifles and the Brady Bill. But four years ago when he ran he said he was looking for the NRA nomination. Romney reminds me of a Congressional candidate from Long Island, back in the mid 90's When New York's up- and - comer Congresman Rick Lazio made his fateful decision to challenge Hillary Clinton for a New York U. S. Senate seat, the local GOP leadership made a gutsy decision nominating a long time office holding African American woman named Joan Johnson to run for Rick's seat. She could have been the first Republican African American woman elected to office. Lazio had been re-elected easily in the District. It could have gone to Johnson. But even before her campaign office was open Johnson made some definitiive comments about gun control and abortion which sealed her fate. She was blown out by ultra liberal Steve Israel. So will Romney's weak knees on the Second Amendment cost him votes? Romney has gone so far as to claim he owned a gun and went hunting, only to reverse himself and admit he did not own a gun!
On climate change, one of the great abuses of speculative science, Romney has been first a global warmer and then skeptical. Romney has been fairly consistent in his support for Gays in the military. Social conservatives, suck it up!
As we go through this litany of course changes for Mitt, remember these were dug up by none other than "Mr Cross the aisle," later to be no competition to candidate Obama, John McCain. So these are not the ramblings of some right wing, ultra conservative red neck like myself, but rather the cooly objective observations of a national hero known for his ability to work with anyone!
Etch - a - sketch certainly fits Mr. Romney and you can bet if he gets the nomination that phrase will be used over and over again to alienate the conservative base Romney has been unable to win in the primaries.
Now, for you all that don't believe me with respect to conservative talk show hosts .. how did Sean Hannity start his show yesterday after the etch - a - sketch story broke? Did he talk about Etch-a-sketch Romney? Nope. He wen straight to Tim Tiebow being traded from Denver to New York! Hannity is a fraud. He is not conservative, he has a job. He earns big bucks. Hannity has sold out, so no he won't begin his show with specific deadly criticism of the Republican - nominee - to - be! Hannity's special guests, Karl Rove, Dick Morris, etc are all globalists, neo - conservatives. They are not conservatives. They don't care about God, and definitely do not want God at the governing table. They are not moralists, or America - Firsters. They are mouthpieces for Republican blue blood elite. And so is Hannity.
Sean and the other talk show hosts better start doing their agility drills now, cause after Tampa, who knows what Mitt will say!
